Hands-on Faith for Families– Week of June 13, 2016

Theme: God Uses You

God's Glory Can Shine Through You

Scripture:In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16).

Play: On a sunny day, hand each of your children a piece of white paper, folded in half, with a loving message drawn or written on one half inside. Without unfolding the paper, have them hold it up to the window to allow the sun to shine through it. Ask them to describe the message they see.

Talk: Just like the sunlight illuminates the message, allowing it to be seen, God’s love lights up our lives and allows others to read a message about His love. God wants others to see the good things we do and recognize His influence in our lives (Matthew 5:16). How can we let others see His love when we’re at the park, at school, in our neighborhood?

Pray: Ask God to let others see His message of love shining through your words and actions.
